Music has been a constant force in heeling when it comes to tragedies and for many it’s a way to escape, even for a little while. We’ve seen that this past week as music has been a big part of healing efforts in El Paso. Whether it’s been corridos or banda, it’s all played a big role in healing and helping many move forward.

The deadly attacks over this past weekend left 31 people dead and occurred at a shopping center in El Paso, Texas, and a popular housing complex in Dayton, Ohio. The El Paso shooting rocked the Latino community in the border city of Texas where many are still grieving and recovering from what many are calling a “hate crime” against Latinos.
